This week we visit with Yiddish vocalist Anthony Mordechai Tzvi Russell and pianist/accordionist Dmitri Gaskin. Together they explore diverse idioms and styles to create their signature contemporary and idiosyncratic new music - set to the works of some of the greatest poets in the Yiddish language. In a lively conversation, we learn about what drew them to Yiddish music and how they’ve been drawing from the roots of Yiddish literature and music to create their unique and amazing work.
